Casting has been announced for The Shakespeare Theatre Company's production of Oscar Wilde's social and political satire, An Ideal Husband, to play Sidney Harman Hall, March 8-April 10. Keith Baxter will direct.

The play tells the story of Sir Robert Chiltern, a well-regarded politician living in wedded bliss (or so he supposes) with his morally upstanding wife. His safety and comfort are challenged when a past crime comes to light and threatens his status as the "ideal husband."

The principal cast will include Gregory Wooddell (Sir Robert Chiltern), Emily Raymond (Mrs. Cheveley), Cameron Folmar (Lord Goring), and Rachel Pickup (Lady Chiltern).

The cast will also feature Kevin Bergen as Mr. Montford, Claire Brownell as Mabel Chiltern, Lise Bruneau as Mrs. Marchmont, Logan DalBello as Prinz Friedrich, Nick Dillenburg as the Vicomte de Nanjac, Warren Katz as Mason, Floyd King as Phipps, Tessa Klein as the Countess of Basildon, Nancy Robinette as Lady Markby, David Sabin as the Earl of Caversham, K.G. and Anne Stone as the Duchess of Maryborough. Ensemble members include Travis Blumer, Louis Cupp, Caitlin Diana Doyle, Greg Gallagher, Emily Joshi-Powell, Martha Karl, John William Schiffbauer and Paul Stuart.

The design team will include scenic designer Simon Higlett, lighting designer Peter West, costume designer Robert Perdziola, and composer/sound designer Martin Desjardins.

In conjunction with the production, STC will host an Open Rehearsal on February 27. There will be two seatings, at 2pm and 4pm. Attendance for this special event is free, and seating is general admission, first-come, first-served.
